I’m surprised I didn’t stumble across this valuable resource sooner. I’ve been considering setting in motion a plan to move out of the city and establish a sustainable village out in the country side somewhere. Myself and a friend have since started debating how we need to start appraching this idea and some of the associated problems.
The Appropriate Technology Library contains the complete text and images from over 1,050 of the best books on all areas of village-level and do-it-yourself technologies…over 150,000 pages! In use in over 130 countries by Peace Corps Volunteers, development and relief organizations, engineers, and missionaries, the Appropriate Technology library is the most comprehensive, compact, and cost effective information resource in the world!
A brief overview of the contents of this invaluable resource:
I’m definitely gonna try to get my hands one a set of these. The website has a nice overview section which gives a summary on each book, so check it out and let me know what you think.
Happy village building!
